Amazing and something I'm very happy to say I've seen a few times at Kai Tak. The departure was even better.... just can't enough of that noise.

Here's a question: what route would the AF Concorde have flown in order to go Mach 2 but not to create sonic booms over populated ground?

BA did seasonal ?? LHR-BGI They also did charters . A BA Concorde brought the '95 Ryder Cup team to ROC !

There was also MIA,DFW & IAD service in the beginning.

So she may not have been a viable business case, but as long as I live, I may never see a more beautiful expression of airborne art, as that which is exemplified by Concorde.

Thanks for posting the link.

Very true. I once saw Concorde land in PHX. It was a great sight, alot of people camping out on the terminal 4 parking garage to catch that flight.

I have seen the video before but still amazing very time you watch it, thanks for posting.

For a pilot, flying concorde into Kai Tak must have been at the abosolut pinacle of achievenments in their careers. The most famous plane and one of the most demanding airport to land at, must have been an awsome feeling to be in comand!

One question about the take-off procedures. Why was it the flight engineer's job to turn off the afterburners (reheat for the Brits) when the captain says, "Noise." (At least that's what I assume he was doing)

I never knew the Concorde went to more places than just JFK, BOS, CDG, LGW, and LHR. Didn't the Concorde fly to DTW to?

And Dallas via D.C. And it did round the world trips, including one at the turn of the millennium.

Great videos, all! Ok, two things...

In the cockpit video, shortly after they rotated, there were some dings, and I heard the FO say what I thought was "240" which I assume was their airspeed... ? Anyway, I know that commercial traffic in the US has to maintain less than 250 kts under 10,000. Was the concord given an exception, or was I hearing things?

Secondly, just watching the landing video, I anthropomorphized the korean 747 to the point that I could swear I saw it turn its head to watch the graceful concord land... hehe.

It also had a regular run to Rio in the mid-70's.

I am sure someone more qualified then myself will answer this but until then:

The services to Kai Tak were charters probable going round the world.

At the pilots call of "noise" the FE pulls back the throttles to a pre-set angle, the reheats automatically de-select once the engines slow down beyond a certain point.
From a passengers point of you this was the most dramatic part of the flat
I believe the restriction for Concorde was slightly higher than 250 kts below 10K but AFAIK there was still a restriction.

She could climb at over 10,000 ft/min

AF used to bring seasonally the concorde to MEX in the late 70´s and early 80´s.

WOW!! was that up to altitude? i also heard that the concorde never actually levels out...its kept in a constant shallow climb from 50000 to 55000 so that when the reach FL550, they have to descend...

Absolutely magic. Memories of watching this beautiful plane flood back including the time I was in Kowloon City (You have probably all seen in movies and adverts looking up at the buildings and seeing a plane whizz past very low on finals) and looked up to glinpse concorde zooming across the top. Absolutely fantastic, especially seeing the thing fly the IGS. Truly was, THE plane.

At the call of "noise"

F/E----- throttles to the preset bugs with one hand, and with the other hand switches off all four rehaets.

In the USA, below 10,000ft, it was restricted like all other aircraft to 250kts, unless there was some operational reason for it to need to fly faster.

On light weight flights or on flights nearer the equator where the high altitude IOAT was lower,then Concorde would cruise level at her max altitude of 60.000ft

If you want a list of destinations that were visited by Concorde then look at the following web site and I believe this does not include them all. Remember most of these were flown to too as charter flights.

27 XXXX10 : That was at around 15,000 feet and was explained over the pa. I doubt she could do that at high altitude.
28 VC10 : It was only a transient high rate of climb and Concorde could only do if she was light and fast, thereby allowing her to trade speed for rate of climb
